Hey guys what are some of the better 3rd party SQL Server monitoring & backup dashboard tools out there?

Are there any that does pretty much everything in one software, like:
-Backup
-Performance Monitoring
-Integrity Checks
-job managing
-Manage security
-etc...

Any suggestion would be great, or what tools you are currently using.

Thx

We use SQL Sentry plus Splunk, SCOM and SQL Server alerts. Some of the things you listed are done by a DBA in SSMS, no extra software needed.

I have some SSIS packages and jobs setup in SSMS. but also was wondering if there was a dashboard like software out there to view all these items on a dashboard of sorts.

Check out the software that Idera has. They have SQL Job Manager for free according to their web site. Though we don't use the feature, SQL Sentry has the option too.

SQL Monitor by Idera is pretty good. We use it to alert us to a number of conditions. But for job failures, all you need is to use the Notifications option within the job agent.
